I studied at the University of Ghana where I completed my BA (Hons) degree in Geography and Resource Development with Political Science. I then moved to the UK in 2001 where I did my MSc in Internet Technologies at the University of Bedfordshire, then followed by my PGCE major in Geography at the University of Hertfordshire. I have been teaching at secondary level since 2004 from KS3 through to KS5. Apart from Geography, I have also taught History, Politics, ICT and Global Perspectives at various levels.
In 2011 I took the middle leader's course at the National College for Teaching and Leadership to prepare me for middle leadership. I held the post of head of department for 5 years until I decided to move overseas to China to start my international teaching career in 2018. Once I moved to China, I took up the role of coordinator for my school's Somerset overseas educational programme that immersed students into cultural and bilingual experiences in the UK to broaden their understanding on the world around them.
I took the decision to move to China because I wanted to explore and expose my children to a world of cultures and opportunities and to nurture and develop them into truly global citizens. I joined BSB in 2019, my second international post in China. What attracts me the most to BSB, is the multicultural student and staff composition, a perfect recipe for true global learning.
In my spare time, I like to catch up with the latest news updates where I get ideas to bring the world into the classroom. I'm passionate about technology but also like to travel and go out with my family to explore local cuisine. I am married with two children who are both in BSB.
